San Diego Cop Kills Self After Soliciting Minor for Sex Charge and Missing Court

San Diego Police Department Sgt. Joseph Ruvido, 49, was found dead in his apartment from a self inflicted gunshot wound on August 5. Ruvido was arrested on July 26 after a investigation determined that he attempted to solicit sex from a minor.

Ruvido’s court arraignment was scheduled for August 5 but he failed to show up and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear. Over a dozen heavily armed officers and SWAT personnel went to Ruvido’s Carmel Valley, California home to arrest him for not showing up to court.

SWAT busted down the door and it was there that Ruvido was found dead inside his residence from a self inflicted gunshot wound, likely to the head. At the time his body was discovered, Ruvido was suspended and on unpaid leave and had his police powers revoked, KTLA News reports.

Police Chief David Nisleit said:

“After several attempts to reach him, the decision was made to force entry into his apartment. Once inside, officers found him deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

Ruvido was facing two felonies and a misdemeanor after he allegedly set up a meeting with a minor for sexual purposes and then showed up at the arranged place and time. Ruvido was also suspected of attempting to commit lewd acts with a child between the ages of 14 and 15.

Ruvido faced four years in state prison and lifetime sex-offender registration if convicted, according to Deputy District Attorney Stephen Marquardt.

Ruvido was in the U.S. Navy for eight years and he was deployed in the first Gulf War.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
